Alan Caulfield writes:

Here’s our short documentary about a pair of peregrine falcons nesting on the Poolbeg chimneys. Since we made the film, they have had two chicks, which flew the nest a few weeks ago and are still in the area.

Save Poolbeg.


“There seems to have been an increase in the deliberate killing of peregrines in recent years with several unexplained nest failures in the southeast.The finding of this bird is not an isolated incident. There have been attempts to poison and shoot birds at a number of nests and if people see anything suspicious like a tethered pigeons or a trap, NPWS staff should be called.”
